Re: How to maintain Mandarin in Zurich (canton)?

There is a Mandarin Spielgruppe in Zürich, Learning Panda:

I don't have any personal experience, so this is not a recommendation per se. I just remembered seeing the facility while out running errands.

While on the way to looking up the above, I also found a Chinese Play Group run by the GZ Heureid. Gemeindschaftszentren (GZ) are community centers - and many are true gems, offering all sorts of activities for all ages.

FWIW, a quick google of 'Spielgruppe Mandarin' or Mandarin für Kinder' brings up several hits in Zürich

You could also look for a private tutor via Tutor24, a platform that brings together people looking for part time gigs and folks who need help.

Searching on 'Mandarin' yields a dozen or so tutors in within 10km from central Zürich, if you expand the range there are a few more. I didn't look for tutors willing to work with children, so that might limit the numbers.

You can also post an ad of your own.

You have to be a member to access the tutor's profiles and contact them. A year's membership is inexpensive.

While you likely can't hire an Au Pair, you could hire a nanny. Do be aware, though, that you might need to pay a premium for a Mandarin speaker, as this is a sought-after skill.


Good luck - hope you find what you need!
